In the 1930's the cemetery was extended on the left hand side.
After the 1st World War gravestones were of a uniform size
and limited by the local council regulations, this reflects the
20th C. ideal of a 'classless' society.

Interestingly the council is now considering allowing memorials 
in the more ornate style and size of the Victorian period.



next:  is the 2nd World War memorials 
previous:  were the 1st Class Roman Catholic graves
